Best "truly" F2P MMORPG choice right now is...

KopogeroKopogero Shevat, ONPosts: 899Member Uncommon

Any F2P MMORPG that requires any purchase to access it or its future content, expansions, patches doesn't belong here.

This thread is only for released MMORPG's discussion.

 

As you know most themepark MMORPG's require frequent content updates so thats one of the main things I would look for in a themepark F2P MMORPG. I'm more into sandbox though.

From my experience, the bigger the community, population and market the game has the more updates it receives, which means brighter future ahead.

A lot of older F2P MMORPG's out there been exposed to excessive botting or any other expoits so this also plays a big role.

The reason I brought this topic is because I like to be busy progressing a character in a secondary F2P MMORPG while I wait on content on my primary MMORPG. I do not want to pay for multiple MMORPG's at the same time and I'm curious to find out which truly F2P MMORPG is the best possible choice.

 

I just start doing research on the latest, most popular truly F2P MMORPG's and I'll replay here later on about my findings.

P.S: Many here will say there is no such thing as a good truly F2P MMORPG, but actually there are that tend to be "Pay to Win", but that would be great if I want to enjoy a truly F2P MMORPG with all of its content as a side MMORPG.

    FTP Sandbox?

    Wurm Online is probably the sandiest sandbox out there:

    http://www.wurmonline.com/

    I mean this is THE sandbox. Those people that 'think' they like sandbox.. but really like sandbox/themepark hybrid, will not like this game.

     

     

    Other games to look at are:

  • WizardryWizardry Ontario, CanadaPosts: 8,466Member Uncommon

    Silkroad,Runes of Magic.I will have to think hard to think of any TRUE f2p game.

    These two i mentioned are free to download and free to play.There are more but mind is on food right now lol.

    I would say Uncharted Waters Online. It has some great systems in place. Things that do not appeal to me about UWO: art style, music, controls, quest stories, and setting. But these are all subject to personal preference so I'd recommend this game to see if its something you'd enjoy.

    Too bad the graphics are some of the worst 3d graphics I've seen in a MMORPG and only reason why I could never get into it.

    I'll reply with these as well since you might miss the edit in my post.

    Other games to look at are:

    • LinkRealms: http://www.linkrealms.com/ (kinda feels like games like Ultima VII, Nox, Divine Divinity. probably the closest thing to Ultima Online since Ultima Online)
    • Ryzom: http://www.ryzom.com/en/
    • Islands Of War: http://www.islandsofwar.com/ (kinda looks like WoW but is pretty sandboxy.. quests with multiple endings and stuff and free character progression, well not free but very hybrid character progression)
  • LoktofeitLoktofeit Stone Mountain, GAPosts: 13,677Member Uncommon
    • Free Realms
    • Battle of Immortals
    • Wizard 101
    • Garden Party World
    • Marvel Super Hero Squad
    • Vindictus
    • Eden Eternal
    • Florensia
    • Tale of Pirates

    If we're including lobby games then I'll add Rusty Hearts and Dungeon Fighter Online. Both are fun for a quick beat down.

    All korean grinders fall under this.  It really all depends on how well you can cope with the items that are available in the cash shop.

         Best F2P's imo would be Aion, City of Heroes/Villains, Vindictus, dungeon fighter online, Path of Exile (when it releases. the beta is awesome and only $10 to get into which becomes cash shop credit when the game goes live).
  • paulocafallipaulocafalli Sampa, CAPosts: 256Member
    If you like the genre, I mean strategy and turns, Atlantica Online is a good F2P game.
  • nolic1nolic1 Kingman, AZPosts: 687Member Uncommon

    Just a few good ones that I think are good anyways.

    Champions online

    Star Trek Online

    Perfect World Online

    Forsaken World Online

    Dungeons and dragons online

    Lord of the Rings online

    Aion

    Lineage 2

    Mabinogi

    And I could go on but will leave it at that.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    Sorry but Wurm ... "Creating an account is free and you can play free of charge for an unlimited amount of time* with restricted abilities." That's more like P2W IMO.

  • XAPKenXAPKen Northwest, INPosts: 4,939Member Uncommon

    Ones I've played and didn't uninstall:

     

    Grand Fantasia

    Aika

    Runes of Magic

    Age of Conan

    Shaiya

    Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine

     

    I'm not aware of any content gating in these.  Cash shop gear and consumables in most.

    eve with plex.

  • paulocafallipaulocafalli Sampa, CAPosts: 256Member
    EVE is amazing but not F2P at all. Ok right, if you can grind 300-400KK/month only to buy PLEX's it can be F2P.
  • RobokappRobokapp Dublin, OHPosts: 5,206Member Uncommon

    well with a good ship you make 15mil every 20 minutes so...about 10 hours/month ?

     

    that's 20 minutes per day. it's the time it takes to do your dailies in other mmo's.

     

    if you put aside 30-60 minutes per session towards the plex, you'll have it every month. It's...well, nothing's free but this is as close as it gets. buying real subscriptions with in-game money legally...is quite a good deal.

    I've been hooked up with DC Universe Online and been enjoying it a lot. DLC this month are 50% off. It only cost me $5 to enjoy the game and its premium (F2P) model is awesome.

    I'll save a lot more compared to upcoming games like GW2 that cost $60 or MOP with monthly subs ;).

    As to the title the only 'truly' f2p mmorpg I've come across is planeshift.

    I agree. I played a bit of DCUO earlier this year. I have not spent a cent though. Quite enjoyable combat, and you can go on mission (instanced dungeon) pretty earlier. I also like the staged quests in instances .. feel a little more involved than the "go in and kill the boss" type wow dungeons.

    Eve.

     

    And Vanguard.

     

    And Fallen Earth.

  • aranhaaranha StockholmPosts: 170Member

    No F2P MMORPG has as much content and depth as Ragnarok Online.

    Im actually suprised that it wasnt mentioned as its one of the pillars of the mmorpg genre!
